What we aim to solve

One Eighty works as gap fillers in the Quad Cities community. Everything from preventative work in our school systems to reaching out into our struggling communities, and helping to develop healthy lives in our residential programming. Communities we work in have been struggling with generational poverty which has led to high crime rates, high unemployment, low test scores in our schools and an elevated poverty rate.

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

We aim to prevent crisis poverty and addiction before they happen, reach out to those who are currently in crisis, poverty and addiction and develop those who are coming out of crisis, poverty and addiction.

We focus on community. We know that if you can strengthen a community and help it thrive, it will positively effect many other areas. In order to see this happen, we work in collaboration with many other non-profits in our area. We also work hard at connecting churches to the community and connecting the community to the church. There are a lot of powerful things that can happen when the church gets connected to the needs of the community. Lastly, we work with these partnering agencies and the community to help close the opportunity gap for so many living in our area.

One Eighty is uniquely qualified because half of our staff are graduates of our program. Many of them are from this community. The other half of our staff are professionals in the social service and faith world. We all work together to bring fresh ideas to the social service field and bring new ways of thinking to break the strongholds of generational poverty.

Naturally through our partnerships we are working with our schools and judicial system (local and state) to monitor data they already track. These include things like performance reviews of the schools in our neighborhood, heat maps of crime and poverty, etc. We also have data that is tracked for our residential program to track the success of our residents/graduates.

Our Prevent programs are currently in 3 schools districts including 14 schools. We offer a before/after school club at 12 schools, in school food pantries at 7 schools, free athletics for several hundred kids and a Saturday morning program offering a free meal and activities for the whole family. We also partner with Davenport Community Schools and the Davenport Community School Foundation to offer a program called "Opportunity for All" which allows teachers and administrators to write "mini grant" requests for students in their school to be able to participate in opportunities they might not otherwise have the means to participate in. Through Reach we have build strong relationships with our neighboring non profits and the neighborhood group. We host events like community clean ups, community Christmas events, monthly neighborhood meetings and more. We also have a food pantry in Mercer County and an app that provides an interactive map showing people all of the great resources that are available in the Quad City area and beyond. Develop includes a 14 month program where we house people coming out of incarceration, addiction, homelessness, etc. They complete 30 hours a week of work program through our social enterprises that are started and run by graduates of the program and they complete 25 hours a week of classes ranging from faith to life skills to relapse prevention. At any given time we have about 10 women in the program and 30 men in the program. We have had
